 Comments

– In fact, it is the powder extracted from the pineapple stem, in the form of capsules that can be effective and not the fruit itself!

– However, as mentioned above, clearer clinical studies are still lacking to prove whether bromelain (the active agent present in the pineapple stem) is in sufficient concentration to act on cellulite.

– So we cannot say whether or not this plant is of prime importance in case of a diet. For now, give preference to plants such as mate or green tea to lose weight (of course accompanied by a diet and physical activity).

– The term pineapple comes from the Guarani word “ibacati” and means fragrant fruit.
